The Common Acre restores relationships between people and the land through ecology, agriculture, and art.
Date: June 22-28, 2020
National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them.
Thirteen years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. Pollinator Week has now grown into an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.
We work with communities and public agencies to revive land by restoring and researching native plant and pollinator habitat, supporting urban agriculture, and activating community green spaces. By creating space to convene artistic and cultural expressions, we seek to inhabit the intersection of art and science.
The Common Acre is unique in the way we have integrated creativity into science-based ecological change. By sharing data driven, action oriented models, we seek to be one of hundreds, or thousands of groups working towards solutions.
